Hi Robin, 


Bright Funds is receiving a lot of communication from users trying to donate to a few popular nonprofits that are coming up as 'Not Pub 78 Verified' on Guidestar (these changes took effect after the September IRS data update). Can you let me know if there's an error happening? It seems very doubtful that some of these orgs lost their Pub 78 standing: 


National Multiple Sclerosis Society (13-5661935) 

Pennsylvania State University (24-6000376) 

A Place at the Table ( 47-2959935)


Thanks in advance for your help!
